Posted 25 October 2013 - 15:13

Hello everyone.  As my passion for collection Pelikan pens increases, I have decided to focus my collecting habits a bit.  I love the variety of the M100 through M250 series and want to focus on that area for the time being.  Thats not to say I don't love the Souveran series too but it's just that they are often more expensive and out of my reach.  Even though I am a collector, I use every pen that I own.  The resources at ruettinger-web.de have been incredibly thorough and awesome and make up the bulk of the list below.  As thorough as that list is, I still occasionally see items not listed.  For instance, the brown tortoise Levenger edition frankenpen that is generally regarded as an M250 or the M150 green model that has the post-97 trim put out for the 170th anniverasary of the company.  I have also seen for sale a red M200 non-demo that is difficult for me to discern whether it is genuine (vs a frankenpen) or not as there is no listing for it on ruettinger-web.de.  My obsessive nature won't let me pursue a collection that leaves room for incompeleteness and that is why I need your help.

 

From the list below, I was hoping those of you out there could cross reference your collection to see if any pieces are missing.  Right now, this list represents 52 pens.  I do distinguish between the same finishes and whether they were Pre or Post 1997 vintage as the pens had different looks.  The listing below denotes; BARREL COLOR, CAP COLOR, TIME PERIOD.  The bold models are simply those that I own as I copied this from a spreadsheet I'd made up a while ago.  It's a bit of an ambitious list to tackle but I think it will be a fun hunt, even though it will take a very long time to complete and some of the pieces can be quite expensive, but I'm already 1/3 of the way there.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

I think you can add to Your list  one more pen.
Pelikan M481. Although the designation M481, it is part of a Series Tradition

-Lizard, Black, Pre-‘97 (my pen is a Rollerball, but I´ve seen them rarely as a fountain pen, too).

 

Here is the set.. Pelikan issued them as Pelikan Snake at that point of time. Still it looks very identical with the M101N Lizard sleeve.

I also remember seeing  a variation of M200 pre-1997 pen of clear demonstrator and tortoise, having one with a single capring and the other one with double capring.

I've got a post-'97, pre-'03 M150 red/black. Cap, section, and piston knob are red/burgundy, and top finial and barrel are black. Great-looking pen. I wish it were an M200...

Yes, I have both the M200 and the M250 Tortoise models with that difference.  The M250 is the Levenger model, and the M200 came used from a seller in Sweden, who, I believe purchased it new there.

-Green, Black (M481 Variant), Pre-‘97
-Green, Black (Galeria-Kaufhof), Post-'97

I have come across an M150 in black/burgundy. I have a version of this pen which is the older style with the "derby" captop. What caught my attention was that this pen had the older style barrel without the trim ring at the piston knob but the newer style cap that replaced the old "derby" type. I wonder if this was a transitional pen because I have seen the same cap on the same colored pen but with the gold piston ring which would be full new style trimmings vs a frankenpen (old barrel married to a new cap).

 

Anyone have any idea if this was an official release or something cobbled together?

Nobody with any experience with this one? I'm reluctant to make the purchase given the uncertainty. May just pass on this one.

Here is the set.. Pelikan issued them as Pelikan Snake at that point of time. Still it looks very identical with the M101N Lizard sleeve.

wow, what a  gorgeous set, I am always considering to buy a pelikan lizard, whereas my budget never let me stand a chance to have one. Maybe 2014...

Adding another pen.  The total tally is still at 74.  I removed the 150/481 since it is identical to the M150 in every respect and therefore is not a model in itself but rather a designation for a commemorative packaging with inkwell.  I will post another complete list in the next post.

The most up to date list as of 2/9/14.  Changes include removal of the nib-on-chain variants which I no longer deem to be official releases.  Also the 170th anniversary M150 was removed as this is the identical pen to the Green/Black Galeria Kaufhof release, just with additional literature in the packaging.  This brings the total number of pens verified to 71.

@ Konis.  Very interesting.  Thanks for the post and the great pics.  What I'm finding is that there were some models that I'd call transitional for lack of a better word.  Examples would be M150's in both grey and burgundy variants with an old style barrel but a new style cap (example above in post #13).  This may be similiar to that.  One of the pens you depict was prior to 2003 and one was post based on the number of chicks on the cap.  Interestingly, despite the new-style post-'97 cap, the one has the old style barrel.  I've decided to not explore these transitional variants though as they are too random to track down.  I suspect it's an instance of Pelikan using up old inventory.

What I'm finding is that there were some models that I'd call transitional for lack of a better word...  I suspect it's an instance of Pelikan using up old inventory.

 

This isn't confined to these lines, either.  I think Rick Propas has used the expression "lunchtime special" for some of these sorts of items.  Such pens have been a source of discussion, sometimes disagreement, over the years.   In addition, there have been "experimental pens" made by Pelikan that crept out for sale, once again, becoming highly disputed in some circles, or some very limited regional distribution of a certain pen line in quite small numbers.  A good example of that sort of pen was the tortoise M800 before the recent re-issue of that line.

 

As I commented in this thread, "My very personal perspective is that if a pen is sold by a distributor or store as delivered by Pelikan to the distributor/store, the pen is not a "Frankenpen", even if the number sold is small. That's more than enough for me in the respect of owning the pen, and should I decide to sell one, I would represent it in exactly that manner."

Speaking of which... Here's a copy of the print ad for the Levenger M250 line of Pelikans (note the dates in the advert for the close-out!).  At another point in time, Office Depot was selling M and R200 lines of pens, but I don't have a copy of the advert for those pens.  I've read and heard disputes about these pens at different times, with some declaiming them as "Frankenpens".  Still, a substantial number of pens went through both of those companies, and I consider them to be "real Pelikan pens".

 

But that's me...

Here is the set.. Pelikan issued them as Pelikan Snake at that point of time. Still it looks very identical with the M101N Lizard sleeve.

So would these still be considered a m101? They are clearly different but I can't find much info... I picked up a rollerball:-)

No.  These are M, R, and K200's in the lizard pattern made in very small quantity for the US market only.  Not to be confused with the 101.
